He is one of the most caring physicians I have ever seen. He takes time to get to know you as a person and to explain the underlying causes of your pain. I would rate his competence level as exceptional. Due to his treatments, I have been able to avoid invasive spinal surgery despite my significant spinal stenosis.

Dr. Ackerman is my new pain management doctor. Being a nurse it I important to have a treat me plan and keep things communicated with my other physicians. Dr.Ackerman listened and respected my plan to have my neurosurgeon give me an ok for injections. I trust my neurosurgeon and have a great relationship. Dr. Ackerman without judgement was supportive and as soon as I got the ok I was getting my injection in 3 days. There is more trust in 2 visits with him than years at my previous provider.
